Meat Pies

Saw this place while browsing Yelp.


Positive reviews for their meat pies. Bakery is on the way to work. Too early on the commute into work (not open yet). Too late on the commute to home (already closed). Humph!

Had to renew my driver license so took a few hours off from work. Soooo, bakery open. Yay!

Bought two meat pies (one chicken, one beef) and one pineapple turnover, ‘cuz the shopkeep said the turnover was excellent. Try try.

Meat Pie

About the size of a personal pizza.

Chicken Pie

Pretty good, standout is the crust. Not flaky, crusty. Kinda like if unsweetened baklava and saloon pilot crackers had a baby.

Finished the beef pie and pineapple turnover for dinner.

Pineapple Turnover, Beef Pie

The pineapple pie was kinda disappoint. No pineapple chunks. smooth. Not sure what the filling ingredients were, gelatin, cornstarch? Saving grace was it wasn’t too sweet, and bakery used the same crust.

The beef pie? To kill for! Rich, but not heavy (if that makes sense), very umami. Nicely seasoned. And that crust! Awesome. Definitely on the “do it again” list, if there’s a chance.

The chicken pie is a close alternative, but The Mouse gotta take a pass on the turnover. Sorry.

I think if the bakery just baked crust, The Mouse would buy. ๐Ÿ™‚

To balance the day, The Mouse also had a plate of fruit.

Orange, Clementine, Kiwi

Enjoy. Eat well.

All Kinds of Healthy

The Mouse’s sandwich last night.

Fermented Nom

Sprouted wheat bread, natto, Vegemite.

To the unasked question, yes, The Mouse would do it again. Except, next time, lightly toast the bread. ๐Ÿ™‚

Enjoy. Eat well.

Hummus Snack

Newbie co-worker definitely has mothering instincts. She’s been baking and making breakfast for the office quite often.

She bought a case of snack packs from Costco and shared with The Mouse.


Apparently thinks The Mouse’s snacking routine has not been the healthiest. Ugh!

Pretzels and Hummus

Cute ya?

Enjoy. Eat well.

One not so healthy, one, kinda healthy.


Macaroon Ice Cream Sandwiches

“Macaroon” cookies with ice cream filling. The Cat had the coffee (top), The Mouse had the green tea (bottom). Nom!

Li Hing Mui Pineapple

Pineapple sprinkled with li hing mui powder. Maybe a local thing? Awfully good.

Enjoy. Eat well.

This week’s one-pot dish. Braised ground pork with turnip.

Start with.

Ground Pork

Browned and braised with salt, whiskey, liquid smoke.

Added diced turnip, braised a little more. Added turnip greens and turned off heat with cover off.

Smoky Braised Ground Pork with Turnip

So good over rice or noodles! Kinda a riff kalua pork with cabbage, but spoonable. No need chopsticks or fork. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
